Pay Per Click (PPC)


Pay per click (PPC) is an internet advertising pricing model in which advertisers pay agencies and/or media companies based on how many users clicked on an online ad or email message.[1]

Cost per click (i.e., the amount spent to get an advertisement clicked) is the metric used by advertisers to determine this model’s effectiveness.[2]
